Sudden right side abdominal spasm followed by right side shoulder pain. Should I be concerned? Please see the details below.

Posted by Katfish

I woke up this morning feeling fine.  When I decided to get out of bed, I felt a funny vibration/spasm in my right abdomen and a pain shot to my right shoulder.  It was almost like an intense muscle cramp.  My vision started to disappear, I felt the need to vomit, and I broke into a sweat from head to toe.  I then suffered from chills.  This whole event took a total of 5 minutes, but the chills and soreness lasted for hours.

I'm a 26 year old female. I don't smoke, and I rarely drink. The only medication I'm on is Apri 21, and I've had digestive problems (likely IBS), and gynocological issues (ruled out cysts/fibroids..could be endometriosis).  Should I be heading to the ER? I can't pinpoint where in the right abdomen the tremor came from because it happened so fast.  I would appreciate any suggestions.
